Due to the unknown threats of the coronavirus in our communities and lives, it is with a heavy heart that the SMGS Festival Committee has decided to cancel this year's Show Me Gourd Society Festival in Springfield, MO April 3–5, 2020. This was a difficult decision to make knowing all the students, vendors, instructors, and gourd artists who have made arrangements to come, not to mention all the hard work the committee has done planning the event. But in the end we felt it important to protect the health and safety of our gourd lovers and friends. To all of you who have been patient with us as we sorted through the final decision, we Thank You! You will be issued a full refund for your dinner, competition entry fees, and workshop registrations. We apologize for all the inconvenience this has caused, and we look forward to seeing you next year. Madonna Watermon, SMGS President
